Weight Watchers

I was so focused on finding someway to get my eating under control that I completely forgot about my issues with WW. And I do have issues. Almost everything else I can get around, but I have a huge issues with numbers. When counting points, I try to get the lowest points possible. In the past, that has led to me being hungry, tired, cranky, etc. Not good. I found myself doing yesterday. I was counting points before I ate the breakfast Hubby prepared for me and realized that it was way too high in points. Luckily, I came to my senses in time and ate a decent breakfast, but I did give the dogs some of it. Same thing happened with dinner on Saturday night. I tried to go for the lowest point thing, but again, came to my senses and ordered something reasonable. I need to switch my thinking when it comes to points. I need to think the same way I do about calories. I have got to eat my 27 points as a minimum. Lower than that and things get ugly. Have to work to keep that attitude. The good news is, I ate my activity points both Saturday and Sunday and yesterday dipped into my weekly extra points. Must remember, food is fuel and I must fuel my body or it will not work right.

On a good note, I have been tracking my points since Saturday morning and am feeling a difference already. Walked the dogs for almost 2 hours Saturday and yesterday and yesterday I felt no back pain at all. None. Huge. I know for a fact that the back pain is directly related to my weight. When the pounds creep up a little, boom, back pain. When I eat without stuffing myself and the pounds creep downward, boom, no back pain. It is related to the size of my stomach.

The first 2 days back on WW were a little tough. Whenever I switch eating modes I always feel like it's not enough. Absolutely ridiculous, I know, but true. Forget the fact that there are days I can go without eating for 10-12 hours and it not bother me at all. As soon as I start a new eating modality, boom my brain freaks out. Knowing that was a huge step forward though. Yesterday, after walking the dogs, I wanted something to munch on. I asked myself if I was hungry, and I wasn't, so I didn't eat anything. Amazing....

Last night I packed my food for today with the intention of hitting 24 this morning. Okay, that didn't happen. But I am on the treadmill writing this, so that's good at least. As I made my food, I logged everything into WW so it's all there today. All I need to do is delete it if I don't eat it or change the amount, whatever. Need to do that every day/night. Also, think I need a second cup of coffee this morning. I guess I'll take it with me.

Okay, so the WW journey is off to a good start. I just need to gain momentum and keep it moving forward. I know the plan works if I work the plan.
